Fletching glue to seal a wound. :)
 
Going through my goodie box and pulled a broadhead out to mount it on a shaft and I fumbled it. Instead of letting it drop I grabbed for it and cut myself deeply on my left thumb. Small cut but it wouldn't stop bleeding so I ran some fletching glue into it to stop the flow. Works as good as the military issued stuff I had in the Army. :)

I use super glue on wounds all the time.

Just recently had a sawsall blade punch me to the bone in the palm below the thumb of my left hand. Had to apply pressure to stop the bleeding.

Cleaned it with alcohol, and glued it closed & sealed with locktite super glue. Worked like a charm.

Man that super glue burns though.

LOL, you got that right, but that just leads me to believe it's also a good antiseptic. :D

Yup, super glue works great. PVC glue will work also in a pinch.

Yeah..... This is the second time I've cut myself with a broadhead. In my defense though it was two different broadheads. ;)

I've used super glue several times I should have had stiches and any fast acting glue should work. It should be noted that if you have a deep puncture wound that you don't want to completely seal the opening so that it can drain.

Here's a trick I learned about using the super glue to close & seal a wound.

As soon as you get the glue applied how you want it, run some water over it.
Makes it set up real hard, real quick.

I have saved myself a trip to the ER, and stitches countless times doing this.

Duly noted. Normally Im a duct or electrical taperer...after making/allowing the cut to bleed profusely to push out foreign organisms. Cayenne pepper is a blood coagulant, anti bacterial, pain tolerance increaser...leaves a wicked scar.

That's hard core.

Who? Richard or Rick ?? :)

Had a surgeon one time tell me that the difference between surgical glue and super glue was about $25 a bottle.

When I worked in the clinic we used it all the time to close lacerations etc. Called it "skin tight" and what's his name was right about 25-30 dollars a fraction of an oz vs store prices - hmmm Costs a lot to sterilize antobiotic chemicals that ecoli couldent live in - hmmm again - lol

I cut my right leg off one time and superglued it back on....:D

LOL, well almost. I was helping a friend cut trees off his house a couple of days after Katrina hit NO. We were just north of NO, across the lake. I cut a small twisted sapling and it grabbed the saw and swung it into my right thigh. The cut was to the bone and 7-8" long.

Nowhere to go so I cut the shredded tissue off clean, rinsed it out with 4-5 different things:eek:, and cleaned out the debris. I then superglued inside, waited 20 min and superglued the top side. Placed butterfly strips, bandaged, and back to work. It never even got a lil red, and healed with almost no scar.

Superglue is good stuff.

That's a bonus - Keeps you from passing out. Wakes you up quick! :D

I keep a tube of super glue in my emergency kit for exactly this reason.

Years ago, I was driving T-Posts in an area about 30 minutes and through a usually-dry / sometimes slightly wet creek bed away from civilization (weak to no cell phone coverage most of the time). I pulled the T-Post driver up too far and it came off the T-Post and directly into my forehead. :D After the stars stopped spinning and I got my feet back under me, I reached up and felt my head. Bleeding pretty good from a gash in my head - right at the hairline. Cleaned it up with some wet-wipes I had in the glove compartment, super-glued it shut, and went back to the T-Posts driving.

Good stuff.

All the best,
Glenn

LOL, that's not sealing a wound. That's self performed surgery. :eek: ;)b
